Daniel Speek on building a micro bakery in Holland and living in a squat community

Published on: 24 April 2019

Daniel Speek grew up in the US but now lives in the Netherlands, where he is slowly and steadily growing a following for his bread and baking.  It's hard work, especially in a market that does not have a strong bread culture.

In this episode, Mark and Daniel talk about the bread scene in Maastricht, alternative ways to bootstrap and grow a micro bakery and what it's like to live and bake in a squat community.

Survey requests!  Please help Mark design the new Bakers 4 Bakers community by answering a few questions. 

And help Daniel make his next move at Bread Connections too.
